Dear Volunteer,

Thank you for your interest in our volunteer program in Nicaragua. Volunteer Abroad is a great experience.

Please contact Juan Munoz our manager in US, he will be happy to coordinate your visit and we will have our local team to help you with the process of visiting our clinic.

You do not need to have a medical background to volunteer with us.

When you volunteer abroad its not just the people in need who benefit. Volunteer workers enjoy powerful feelings of purpose and a strong sense of accomplishment. They meet new people and make life-long friends. Volunteer work in Nicaragua offers the opportunity to experience other cultures, learn things not found in books or classrooms and gain a new perspective on the world at large.

Past workers have reported that medical volunteering has been among the best experiences of their lives.

Whether you're looking for a change of pace (or scenery!) from your current medical/healthcare career or are looking for an exciting way to fulfill your internship responsibilities, The Roberto Clemente Clinic in Nicaragua presents a great volunteer opportunity in Nicaragua the chance to combine the thrilling adventure of travel with the benevolent feelings of giving back to those in need in our community in Limon, Nicaragua.

Contact Juan Munoz, our US Executive Director, to find out more about this exciting overseas volunteer program.


If discovering a new country through surfing, camping, horseback riding and hiking sounds ideal to you, consider a volunteer vacation to Nicaragua!

Imagine a morning filled with the smiling faces of children eager to learn basic math skills from you, followed by an afternoon of leisure at the beach. What about discovering nature strolling forest trails brimming with monkeys and exotic birds in the morning, then an afternoon of self-discovery as you feel the pride of teaching the essentials of sanitation to people without plumbing in Nicaragua.

Volunteering abroad at the Roberto Clemente Clinic can even give you the unmatchable experience of working side-by-side with our doctors and nurses to save someones life or helping to create an entirely new healthcare program for our clinic or for the community in Nicaragua.
